Volvo FM engines

High driveability. Low fuel consumption. And with premium reliability. These are the characteristics of Volvo diesel engines.

  • D13, 13-litre with 400 to 480 hp

Volvo FM torque

The Volvo torque curve.
You’ll feel it in the pedal.

Excellent torque at low revs. An extremely wide max torque range. Peak torque meets peak power. Volvo’s leadership in diesel-engine technology is clearly visible once you start comparing engine curves. You’ll experience fast acceleration, excellent pulling power, comfortable low-speed handling and, not least, a fuel-efficient and pleasurable ride at cruising speed.

Fuel efficiency

Fuel-efficiency built-in.

The optimised combustion chamber geometry. The fast and precise EMS-controlled injection. The high gas-fill ratio. We could go on listing what makes Volvo engines hard to beat at fuel economy. Your bottom line will reap the benefits. So will the environment.

Volvo engine brake plus

Volvo Engine Brake.
Minimise wear on the brake pedal.

If you want to maintain a high average speed without compromising safety or fuel economy, you need a good engine brake. That’s why Volvo Engine Brake (VEB), available on the D11, is so widely appreciated. And on the D13, you also have access to our patented VEB+, absorbing up to a massive 375 kW (510 hp), thanks to the unique camshaft design with four rocker arms.
